Re: Tippet material longevity?
The first year that fluorocarbon was on the market, the spool that I bought didn't last through season. Why ? I haven't a clue.
Turned me completely off on the stuff and I haven't used it since.
I've got some Orvis SuperStrong mono that's better than 20 years old.
That I trust.
If it's old, test it before you tie it on.... And carry back-up
